    Hi everyone

    Been reading all the messages all last night and today so thought I would post one (been in the chat room which looks good too)

    I am only 5 wks - so feels all so new and a long way off yet! Found out last Friday.

    Glad to read from some of the postings that its normal to feel moody, tearful, etc etc.... thought I was the only one - am really excited (so's hubby too - still a bit of a surprise though! - one minute I was at work - doing a report, two hours later Im in the doctors talking about midwives and due dates!!!) Bizzare but good! Found it a surprise because had really bad cramps and thought I was about to have my usual period anytime now - since being on here I see it is a normal sympton!!!??

    You all seem really nice so I hope I get a post back!

    Cheers.

    Hi Sami

    Yes it is - just been on the chat room - waiting for my bath to go tepid - is it normal to be this paranoid??!!!

    Also mad with myself cos I cant stop smoking - keep having a go everyday but it just isnt happening. Been balling down at the docs today like a pratt!

    Guess Im just so excited, but scared that something will go wrong as well.......would kill for a glass of wine! lol

    I am unfortuately still smoking so dont be too hard on yourself. I'm sur you will be able to kick the habit soon enough.

    It's normal and normal can be to be paranoid! Especially with a first! Your bath should be okie - doesn't need to be that cold to get in - as long as it's not boiling!! If it turns your skin red - it's too hot - bout don't stress yourself too much :)

    Pregnancy is fun eh x

    Hey congratualtions hun, hope you and your bump to be are happy and healthy. I know what you mean about the trying to give up smoking thing, I am finding it so hard, and feel so guilty when I lhave a sneaky fag. As for feeling paranoid I used to think that I was the onlt one, I used to constantly think about different things that could go wrong, I still do actually, I just try to be less carm, cos apparently its pretty normal to get paranoid, so you are not on your own there.
    Hope to speak to you again, and keep us updated.

    I told parents and in laws the same day and close friends gradually. Most ppeople I know have found out one way or another already - but I've had my '12 week scan' at 11 weeks and everything is fab so we can now tell the world!! :D

    Just tell whoever you like when you feel ready - some say wait till 12 weeks in case of something unfortuanate happening, but I told parents as I knew their support would be benificial either way.

    Hi Bec and Bump'

    Probably not the 'done' thing but seeing your from South Wales reminded me of my ex - he was from the Rhonnda Valleys!

    Perhaps it is best to tell people early - I have told my mum and close family and a few close friends - I always think you'll need the support either way because people will know something is up if your not 'yourself'

    I reckon I will be addicted to this if I give up smoking (if only!)

    I hope reminding me of ypur ex, didnt bring bad thoughts, lol :lol: .
    I cant wait till everyone knows, close family and friends know, but I think with the rest they will gradually find out in thier own ways.

    God Im so tempted to have a cig *gives herself a smack on the hand for even considering it* :oops:
